Yes it is legal. The only requirement is that the DNN attributions be in the CODE. We are allowed to suppress them in the UI so as to give hackers less clue as to what software & what version we are running.
Sadly, they are some who feel it is ok to claim the Core Team's hard work as their own... I wonder if such people would approve of us starting a thread which gives out their names, websites, and other content so that we can all TAKE their work without so
much as a thanks?!?
I think you will find many "normal," "ethical" firms who may offer you a DNN base solution--but one where they disclose the origin and structure their fees around either custom extensions or services to help you get going/manage it.

When GPL was changed with BSD?

DNN has never been under GPL (as far as I can remember, and I've been around since 1.0.5). It has always been a BSD style of license.

basically yes, with a few minor conditions.
They cannot claim copyright on the code and the original DNN copyright must remain in tact. Additionally, they can not make any code changes and try to offer it as "DotNetNuke" since that name is trademarked.
